Showdown in Geneva: Most OOXML Dispositions Fail to Achieve Majority Approval at BRM
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, March 06 2008 @ 09:01 AM CST
Just as I thought... Couldn't follow your own agenda... 

Didn't take a resolution to prepare a new text (should have been the final resolution/vote).   So it looks like you came up with a list of editing instructions but not a revision to the text.   You'd better tell everyone... The votes are over, no new resolved text means no resolution at the BRM, which by the procedure means no additional voting.  Votes should officially stand as they did last fall.   DIS 29500 is not able to be approved on fast track.

You'd better advise those ISO PR people that they are wrong.  Additional voting would be fraud.  I'm certain that's a crime in most places. 

MS is going to be disappointed, but it's a convicted criminal (in the US for antitrust violations) anyhow and I have trouble feeling sorry for criminals especially when it appears they are still committing the same crime elsewhere.
